It was one of those awkward situations as we walked, fatigued and too thirsty to speak a word.
My wife Maureen and I spend part of our winter season in the Quartzsite, Arizona area. One fine March morning, we left our RV camping area at approximately 10am in search of that elusive yellow metal with our metal detectors.
Q: With safety as a given, what can the average miner, or Joe-blow greenhorn do to identify and extract some metals or minerals with off-the-shelf products or natural ingredients?
Is there a method which can be done safely to get the metals to drop out of the cyanide solution? What is the best way to learn how to evaluate the potential of this serpentine platinum deposit potential?
